I'm So Excited!

This is my 500th POST!!!!!
For almost 3 years I have
been chit chating about a
variety of things with you--
my fellow blog friends!
Blogging helped me during
the years that Ken was out
of work. It gave me a
distraction from the "what
now" questions we were
dealing with at the time.
Now I enjoy getting to
know all of you more and
making more new friends.
It is also fun to find new
crafting ideas, recipes
amd learning about new
products being used in
Sharing our lives with you
and you letting us share in
yours has been great too!
To celebrate this milestone
I am having a SUMMER
This is my way of thanking
you for hanging out here
with me.
All you have to do to be
entered is: tell me something
that you have taken away
with you from a visit.
It could be a recipe, a craft
idea, a piece of trivia etc.
I'll put the names in a basket
and Ken will do the big draw
NEXT Sunday.
Thanks again for hanging out
with me AND Ken, we have
enjoyed your company.
If you know of someone who
would like to hang out here
let them know about us here
at Country Dreaming.
Happy Father's Day to all the
Dad's and those who Father.
Enjoy your day!!!!
~Keep on Dreaming~

    Blessings on your day!

  3. Congrats on 500!! I think the first post I popped in on had some beautiful flowers planted in one of your treasure hunt finds - it's fun to see what you find and what you do with it!!

  4. Melinda, you are such a delight & love your humor. Congrats on your celebration!

    TTFN ~

  5. Well... congrats on the 500th post!!!!! I just turned 400 ( we're slackers in Baltimore)

    Lets see.. what I most enjoy from your posts are those crazy fun facts and "holidays" that you teach us about!! I should add that you got me into the habit of giving back to the hospitals ~ which is a wonderful thing!

    Loved learning about you and Mr Ken. I love my bloggy friends.

    Happy 501 and after!

  6. CONGRATULATIONS on your 500th post!!!

    Having worked with challenging students myself, I take away all the fun projects and ideas that you tell us about. They give me such great joy! I have enjoyed following you and Mr. Ken along as we journey through this time called 'life'.

    Looking forward to the 1000th post!

  9. Hi Melinda, congrats on your 500th post!!
    I love your crafty ideas and your thrifty finds! Charity shops in the UK never seem that exciting when I see what you've picked up! :)

  10. congrats on the 500th post that is awesome.
    Well I love reading your posts and getting to know you. One post on tie dying came in handy recently. I knew right where to buy the kit you mentioned and we did some tie dying at the library today with our teen group.

  11. Congrats on your 500th post - I better get busy and catch up with you!!! Thanks for always being supportive of my blog - I truly appreciate it! Happy continued posting my friend!

  12. Wow...congrats on that big 500 number. First of all, I want you to know that I have enjoyed coming to your place and visiting with you and Mr. Ken....I have taken away a lot of knowledge!
    In my wee early start to blogging, You and Ken were so sweet to help me when I needed help figuring things out...I am very thankful...I consider myself blessed to have you as a precious blogging friend..

  13. Congratulations!!

    And thank you.
    You have shared your heart with us, your humor, and your creativity.

    I always enjoy my visits here, and loved the post with your new apron. Darling!!

    Smiles :)

  14. 500 posts! We started blogging around the same time, and I've done only 317 posts. That shows you are far more disciplined than I am. Congrats! What I've taken away isn't necessarily things you've posted, although you sure have some yummy recipes. It's more about you sharing your life with your readers--the places you go, what you're doing. And also, that you stop by my blog to say hi. It's about friendship.

  15. That is a real blogging milestone. I hope to be around for the next 500 :-). You enlighten, entertain and engage. Happy 500! Blessings...Mary

  16. Oh my goodness...500 posts WOW! I am only on 195 and I have been blogging since 2008 I better get busy...LOL
    What I enjoy about your blog is that you share so much of you...and that you enjoy your friends and eating icecream LOL (me too). Also that you and Ken are the perfect couple and are so sweet together.
    I always enjoy my visit with you.
    Have a sweet day and congratulation on 500 post.

  17. Happy 500th! We started blogging just about the same time and I am so glad that we met in Blogland. I especially like the Valentine's event for the Children's Hospital. You have a beautiful heart and spirit and I am delighted to call you friend. Here's to many more years of blogging buddies!


Thanks! Hope you enjoyed today's post. Come back soon.
